Hi everyone in new here, just bought my ST estate the other day and seeing if there's many of these ones around as if never seen one this colour where I am!? 😃
Need some advice aswell! Got some white/blue smoke and rough idle on morning start up, literally for about 5-10 seconds and once...
So having had the Mondeo over 6 months now, I can certainly say its a great car.
Since starting driving in 2007, I've ploughed my way through the following cars:
Clio 1.2 (not bad for £500, sold for £500)
Polo 1.4 (low and slow)
Stilo 1.9 JTD Sporting (horrendous)
Bora 1.4 16v (very slow)
Bought a beautiful performance blue ST TDIC a few weeks back and has not disappointed me since totally fallen in love with it, it has the Sony 6cd multi changer player and has been re mapped to 190bhp
So thought I'd start a thread just to keep abit of progress track really.
I swapped my 2nd Clio 182 which I bought shortly after Christmas for this a few weeks ago.
I've put nearly 1000 miles on it already with a combination of trips here there, a trip to Northumberland for my Cousins wedding...
The mondeo I have has minimal service history and receipts with it.
It drives spot on and has been hovering around 50-54mpg so guessing it is running right also.
For peace of mind, I'd like to give it a service.
The car has covered 175k, nearer 176k now.
What shall I go with?
Picked up a ST TDCI the other weekend over a swap with my Clio 182.

Needs a few niggles sorting and tidy up but all in all its a great car. Doesn't seem to be moving much from 50mpg on the clocks with the mileage I do.
Great car so far, loving it...
Latest modification update,
Just bought the DevilsOwn Methanol Injection DVC-30 Kit and thought about modding the controller already.
Due to the size of the controller, I modified the case, connectors and Boost pipe to rear entry instead of side and removed the Sprung Loaded Cup Holder and...

Thought I'd start a build thread for my ST tdci, with my previous modded car I waited till I'd done a load of stuff and my first few posts took ages to write up Here's a link to my previous car if anyone's interested...

Was thinking of doing a diesel purge before my re-map at the end of the month, has anybody done this?
was gonna use liqui-moly diesel purge and do the set-up where you bypass the fuel filter and purge the engine with just the moly.
theres numerous vids on youtube of people doing VAG's anybody...
